Description

History

This car was built at Dan Gurney's AAR shop and was finished at Ray Caldwell's Autodynamics. It was a factory Dodge entry with Sam Posey as the driver. The car’s best finishes were all third places; at Lime Rock, Road America and Kent race circuits. It finished fourth in points for the 1970 season behind Ford and AMC, but ahead of Chevrolet, Plymouth, and Pontiac... not bad for a last minute start‐up team!

In the Trans‐Am Series, teams would "acid dip" the race cars to etch away metal, thus making the car lighter. At Laguna Seca, the first race of the season, the Challenger team was last in line for technical inspection. Since all the factories were participating in 1970, the first inspection of the year was highly detailed. After the Challenger had passed tech inspection and was accepted, the team offered John Taminus, the Chief Technical Inspector, a beer. John rested his elbow on the roof of the car and it dimpled in (from too much time in the acid bath). When that happened, he told them that they could not run the car until the roof was replaced. Within an hour of that incident, the Challenger team had received permission from Dodge and torched the roof off a Challenger that was sitting on a dealer's showroom floor in downtown Monterey. Richard Goldsmith ‐ Gilroy, California, currently owns and runs this 1970 Trans Am Dodge Challenger in the Historic Trans Am series.
